The SMU men opened the Bradley Tournament with a come-from-behind 3-2 victory in overtime Friday night.   The opening half was dominated by 16th ranked Creighton and they led 2-0 at the half on a 39th minute goal from Andrew Ribeiro followed in the 41st with a goal from Ethan Finlay.

The second half belonged to SMU though as they rallied back to tie the game and send it to overtime.   Castillo started the Mustang comeback with a goal in the 69th minute. Goalkeeper Craig Hill punted the ball out of the defensive end, and Castillo ran on to it for a quick counterattack. The goal was Castillo's team leading fifth goal of the season. The assist was Hill's first point of his career.

Arthur Ivo added the equalizer, converting a penalty kick in the 76th minute. SMU was awarded the shot when Ivo was taken down in the box by a Creighton defender. Ivo also netted the winner on a penalty kick in the 103rd minute after Castillo was taken fouled in the box. The goals were Ivo's first of the year. SMU is now three-for-three on penalty kicks this season.

"It was a tale of two halves," said head coach Tim McClements. "At halftime, we regrouped and refocused. We were able to play our game, match their intensity. The guys showed a tremendous amount of character and a lot of fight. I'm really proud of performance."
